That’s all I wanted to say. Louis Morissette predicted in this very space that the big bad Bruins would win this series in five and now Louis is a brilliant comic writer, performer and producer – and is lucky enough to be married to Veronique Cloutier – but clearly he shouldn’t quit his day job any time soon to become a full-time hockey betting man. lol
But lots of other people – including no shortage of so-called media pundits – suggested Boston would just crush Montreal. And they were all wrong. Hey Boston could of course still win the series but there will be no crushing involved. The only crushing that will happen is if the Habs take it in five.
In case you live in a cave – or somewhere far from Montreal – the Canadiens won 4-2 Tuesday, surviving the dreaded 3-1 third-period lead, to take a 2-1 lead in the series. P.K. Subban – once again showing his flair for the dramatic – jumped out of the penalty box in the first period, grabbed a pass from Lars ‘The Great Dane’ Eller and went in alone on Tuuka ‘I’m No Good Against Montreal’ Rask and well just undressed him.
Also how about that Dale ‘Gretzky Weise goal where he too was sent in on a breakaway on The Raskal and five-holed him, with everyone saying Rask never lets in five-hole goals. Well yeah, of course he doesn’t, unless he’s facing a sniper like Weise! On Hockey Night in Canada, they actually followed the tape of the Weise goal with the vid from the night before with Crosby going five-hole on Lundqvist. Crosby, Weise. Oh yeah.
But that’s the perfect story for the Habs in these playoffs. A fourth-line role player who has thus far got two huge goals for Les Boys.
So for the all the Habs doubters – it’s not too late to apologize and jump on the bandwagon. Are you listening Rafael Ouellet?
